Why is there a big space after the header on my school configurable report card causing the first class to print on a second page?

On the Document Layout record, there is a parameter in the Class Detail Category section called 'Class Section Page Breaks'. The options for this parameter are as follows:

  • Always — inserts a page break before each enrollment
  • Sometimes — avoids page breaks inside of enrollment but will insert a page break if it will keep a class all on one page
  • Never — does not insert page breaks around enrollments

If you have the parameter set to Always, the most likely reason the first class is being pushed to a second page is due to the length of the individual class data included in the enrollment.

To fix this issue, either:

  • adjust the parameter setting to Never so that a page break is not inserted
  • adjust the length of the individual class data that is displayed on the document
